DECLARATION on Gender and Climate by Mediterranean Women Meeting in Tangier on 18 and 19 July 2016 during the MedCOP Climate

08.11.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

The Declaration on Gender and Climate by the Mediterranean Women was adopted by the participants at "Gender and Climate", during the workshops of MEDCOP Climate (Tangier, Morocco, 18-19 July 2016). It has already been signed by over 200 organizations and personalities. The declaration emphasizes the importance of integration of the gender approach in the climate agreements as urban and rural women in developing countries are on the first line of defense and profoundly affected by climate change. It calls for better representation of women in climate negotiations and for the recognition of their role as agents of change. The declaration contains a series of proposals and demands to the States in line with the Paris Agreement, the first universal climate agreement which entered into force officially on November 4, 2016, on the eve of the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on climate change (COP22).
